Heidi Klum knows beautiful jewelry—remember her perpetually sold-out QVC line?—and she proves it Emmys night after Emmys night. We took a look back at her most memorable pieces, from the rock-crystal bracelets she designed herself to the knockout Lorraine Schwartz jewelry she has favored for the last few years. After all, who but the stunning Ms. Klum could pull off lavender jade butterfly earrings? Check out her carat-studded best looks in the gallery.
We just can’t get enough of Blake Lively‘s wedding to Ryan Reynolds—from the Notebook-approved venue to her hand-draped Marchesa dress—and now we have an up-close photo of her diamond ring! The Gossip Girl star was spotted leaving the Boone Hall Plantation in South Carolina, where the nuptials took place, wearing a gorgeous (and giant!) solitaire sparkler on her left hand. The Lorraine Schwartz ring boasts a light pink oval diamond set in a rose gold band with pave diamonds, a match to her wedding band. Classic and stunning, just like the bride! (We’re also seriously coveting her supple leather Brunello Cucinelli luggage.) Some girls have all the luck…
Beyoncé won big at the 2012 BET Awards last night! The singer, who was nominated six times, walked away with the Best Female R&B Artist and Video Director of the Year statues, the latter in conjunction with Alan Ferguson for their work on “Dance for You” and “Party.” For her big night out, which she shared with husband Jay-Z, his BFF Kanye West, and West’s date Kim Kardashian, Beyoncé chose a chartreuse couture gown by Stephane Rolland featuring the hottest red-carpet style of the moment, the up-to-there, thigh-high slit. She paired the look with Givenchy shoes and Lorraine Schwartz earrings. Do you like her dress? Let us know in the comments!

Congratulations Molly Sims! The model, actress, and new Project Accessory host married producer Scott Stuber in Napa Valley, California over the weekend. For her wedding gown, she chose a Marchesa design with a mermaid skirt and illusion neckline, which she accessorized with Lorraine Schwartz jewelry, according to People, as well as her engagement ring, which the groom designed himself. A chic bun updo completed her look, while Stuber wore a white-tie tuxedo by Tom Ford. Gorgeous! Click through the gallery to see more beautiful celebrity brides of 2011!
Between the Facebook comments and Twitter responses over Kim Kardashian’s wedding hairstyle, the reaction is split on whether you liked the reality star’s diamond headpiece by Lorraine Schwartz. Fashion entrepreneur Iman admitted she was a bit surprised by the look herself. “When she pulls her hair back she looks so classic, so I thought she would pick something more classic,” the supermodel told InStyle.com at the launch of her Platinum collection for HSN in New York yesterday. “But then I thought, it’s her fairytale. It’s her wedding. She can do what she wants, and she did!”

Kim Kardashian pulled her strands back into a sleek updo, and fastened on a glittering diamond Lorraine Schwartz headpiece for her August 20th wedding. (The sparkling topper matched her earrings, wedding band, and engagement ring, and in total, she wore a total of $10 million worth of jewels by the designer.) The hairstyle is different from her quintessential long waves, which makes us wonder: How would you have preferred Kim’s wedding day hairstyle—the sleek updo or her signature look?

You’ve probably heard this name a lot recently: Lorraine Schwartz. She’s the jewelry designer behind Kim Kardashian‘s $2 million 20.5-carat diamond engagement ring, and big rocks are her business. The New York jeweler (shown inset, below) is the third generation to run the family’s jewelry company, and she is known for her extravagant pieces. Halle Berry was one of the first celebrities to wear Schwartz on the red carpet at the SAG Awards in 2002, and ever since her fans include Beyonce, Heidi Klum, Angelina Jolie, and Blake Lively, as well as Kim Kardashian, of course. Click “See the Photos” for a roundup of the most extravagant pieces by Schwartz to ever hit the red carpet.
For us, Thanksgiving’s all about perfecting our pumpkin pie recipe, catching up with family and eating a little too much stuffing. And we found out at the Lorraine Schwartz “2BHAPPY” jewelry collection event that it’s actually pretty similar for Hollywood’s hottest. Blake Lively told us, “I cook an entire feast—a 12-course meal!—sweet potato casserole is my favorite.” Kim Kardashian revealed: “We get up early; my mom stalks us all. She calls, calls, calls to make sure we’re at the house helping, because if we’re not helping cooking it ruins her whole day and she’s a crazy lunatic so I have to get there early.” Sounds like both women have a great days planned. Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!
